Tennessee Voter Guide – 2022 Primary Races
How To Vote For, Not Against, Your Values
Ratings: Every candidate is considered after thorough research; we also have a questionnaire for candidates to complete, including our Tennessee Taxpayers Protection Pledge.
Our highest ratings go to candidates who will defend freedom, stand for free enterprise, or have a conservative and/or biblical worldview based on their ability to stand firm against efforts to increase taxes, size of government, weaken law and order, and crush individual freedom. Here is our rating system:
- ***** The best candidate. Our strongest endorsement.
- **** Very good.
- *** Acceptable.
- ** Vote only to prevent worse candidate(s) from winning.
- * Terrible. Do Not Vote. All your other votes will count.
